General Meeting – Thursday, February 20, 2020
February 16, 2020

Our next general meeting is Thursday, February 20, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.  Guests and potential members are welcome! Our meetings are held at Little Falls Presbyterian Church, 6025 Little Falls Road, Arlington 22207.  Do RSVP to so we know you’ll be there.

Our speaker for February 20th is Nancy Murphy, who graciously agreed to step forward after our planned speaker, Rob Soreng, was called by the Smithsonian to undertake a plant field mission to South Africa. Nancy has been a member of the National Cathedral Flower Guild for 24 years and the chairperson of the St. Mary’s Episcopal Church Flower Guild for 20 years. Nancy also does flowers for wedding receptions on occasion, and she is an avid gardener.

The National Cathedral is renowned for its spectacular floral arrangements and you will learn techniques that are used to create these masterpieces, which can be applied to making your own special arrangements. Nancy will make two identical flower arrangements which we will raffle off at the end of her presentation.
